Mr Suharto began to respond to a blood transfusion and dialysis treatment administered by his team of doctors at Pertamina Hospital in Jakarta.

However, by Tuesday 8 January, his condition deteriorated with signs of internal bleeding and fluid build-up in his lungs. His condition fluctuated until Friday 11 January, when the former president lost consciousness and suffered multiple organ failure. He was put on a ventilator to help his breathing.
By the third week of his hospitalisation, his condition was reported to be much improved and doctors were even saying that the former Indonesian leader was breathing on his own and could possibly go home.

However on Sunday 27 January, doctors said he suffered multiple organ failure again and went into a coma before slipping away.
